    I was having pain in my lower back my right leg going numb down to my toes . Going to work everyday and experiencing a lot of pain. I Went to see Dr Dixit and he ordered a shot in my back which helped just a little but after a few weeks decided that we had no choice but to do surgery. After the surgery no pain in my lower back and no pain or numbness in my right leg . You just don't know how appreciative I am to be able to stand and walk without pain . I would highly recommend Dr. Dixit .

    I've had 2 cervical surgeries, multiple office visits, and physical therapy. I've had concerns and questions, through this all I've been reassured and questions answered. Dr Dixit is the ve VERY BEST, the BESTEST of the BEST!!! I have berm in the medical field for 23 years and I can honestly say there are very few doctors at Dr Dixit level.

    As far as personal, explaining the condition and trying to help after things went wrong? Excellent. As far as the necessity of doing the procedure; that remains in question, and the symptoms I was supposed to have, I didn't have, I now have. So as far as results go? Not so good,well, as of NOW. I understand every time you enter the human body there are risks, but almost 3 months with me in worse shape in many ways: even now. Well, I do wonder if we hadn't done this if it would have been best.

    While I did not actually spend much time with Dr. Dixit, the time I did have face to face with him was informative and comforting. He has an excellent and skilled team and I felt very involved in my treatment throughout.
    in Old Hickory, TN |
    Dr Dixit was very through. He looked at all my x-rays and reports prior to seeing me and basically told me symptoms I was having. He also made me aware of another problem, that was more severe, I didn't even know about. 1st surgery experience with Dr Dixit was excellent. I feel very confident in doing my next surgery in 3 mos. Amy and the rest of the staff are very kind and professional.

    Excellent doctor. He exhausted all avenues of correcting my pain and issues prior to suggesting surgery. Surgery went well and recovered quickly.

    I was a bit in the nervous side when I found I need to see a surgeon but after ten minutes with the staff I was put completely at ease! Dr.Dixit and his staff have been so amazing and even helped when I had a few small issues with the recommending doctor. Before I had the surgery they were on top of things and making sure I was aware of every small detail before hand. I even had a few insurance hold ups and the office managed to get things worked out so I could still get my surgery. AMAZING!
